Resorts of Wisconsin celebrates the grand history of the Badger State’s family-run resorts. Captivating historical images will give readers a trip down memory lane, while stunning present-day photography shows that many things haven’t changed.
People still go to resorts to create family memories revolving around woods, water, and quaint cabins. It is here that people feed their hunger for simpler times and peace from a hurried world. With well-written historical overviews of the di erent regions throughout Wisconsin, the book catalogues the growth of tourism and its development into Wisconsin’s third-largest industry. The individual property stories—with titles ranging from “We’re Going to Party Like It’s 1895” to “Uphill Both Ways” and “The Long Shot,”—are sure to keep the reader engaged and turning the pages.
